Western Regional Waste Management

Directed by the Western Regional Service Board, Western Regional Waste Management is responsible for the development and implementation of the solid waste management plan that will provide integrated sustainable waste management services to all residents and businesses in the Western Region of Newfoundland.

Western Region

The Western Newfoundland waste management region spans from Bellburns in the north to Ramea in the south and extends east to White Bay and is divided into seven sub-regions.

Provincial Solid Waste Management Strategy

In 2002, the provincial government released the Newfoundland and Labrador Waste Management Strategy with the aim of province-wide modern waste management.  The primary goals of the strategy are: divert 50 per cent of solid waste from landfill; reduce number of waste disposal sites by 80 per cent; eliminate open burning and incineration; phase out of unlined landfills; and province-wide implementation by 2020.

In 2015, the Provincial Government extended the timeline for implementation of the Strategy, with a plan to complete a province-wide network of transfer stations and waste recovery facilities by 2020 and develop full-scale organic waste management infrastructure by 2025. Read more.


Western Regional Waste Management is committed to open communication with residents and businesses of the Western region, as well as Committee members representing municipalities and local service districts throughout the region.
